I have always liked moveable paper toys. I also like portholes, submarines with riveted panels, and ships with the oars sticking out the side. This is just a fun paper sculpture on a magical journey. Where it is going and how it gets there is up to you.
Artist BioBryan Kring is a graphic designer, letterpress printer and book artist in Oakland, California. He was first featured here at 23 Sandy in our Pop Up Now! show in October of 2010. When I was in my early twenties I wanted to be a writer. I wanted to be Ernest Hemingway with a bottle of rum in a grass hut on a beach in Cuba. I liked writing but I didn’t have any stories to tell. Instead I saw pictures so I took up painting. I went to art school and filled my home with canvases. When I ran out of space I turned to printmaking. I was seduced by the beauty of ink and paper and explored first etching and then later letterpress printing. Now, in my forties, as I play in the book arts I am having fun connecting the circle back to the writing.
